Crown on the rise throughout Asia and the Pacific. Here’s what the rest of the world can learn

How to fight much of the rest of the world with the coronavirus pandemic, it seemed that many places in Asia and the Pacific region to successfully suppress the virus. Australia’s response to the crown was so successful that some experts say it could be eliminated in the country. The number of cases crown in Japan fell significantly in late April, after an earlier peak. And in Hong Kong, life had begun pre-pandemic had returned to the same periods Leader in most office buildings and students away at school again had. Officials in the region are beginning to bubble Travel Planner, international business and tourism would resume, as well. But that optimism is replaced with new lockdowns and social distancing restrictions such cases cross again in the region. Thursday ‘, records both in Tokyo and Hong Kong meet every day for new cases crown. And growing epidemic in Melbourne, the second largest city, in the July 8, usually with forced residents requested again block of Victoria was to stay home. On Friday, Australia hit the second highest increase in day cases, 438, with all but 10 in Victoria. Experts say that springs like this, even in places that successfully defend the early stages of the virus are inevitable and should serve as a warning for the eastern United States and parts of Europe, after apparently gaining control reopening their outbreaks. Actually, the raw numbers of cases are seen lower than those in other parts of the world, especially in the US The record of new cases in Tokyo on Thursday was 286 out of a population of 14 million, and Hong Kong, a city ​​of 7.5 million euro, there were 67 new cases. But experts say that the lessons are still useful. New York, for example, marks the first 24 hours without the beginning of the pandemic, no deaths from the registration viruses and moves slowly toward re-opened. (New York, with a population of 8.4 million registered 767 new cases.) Governments must prepare to deal with it the right tools in place with recurrent episodes of dealing with them, says Gavin Yamey, director of the Center for impact the policy on global health at the Duke global health Institute. “For a small fire off, you need a good system to identify cases to them quickly isolate and track their contacts and quarantine,” says Yamey. “This requires that all data systems and stronger health information. As seen in the US, states like Florida and Texas, if you do not have these skills, then a small fire can quickly turn into a living hell.” Kentaro Iwata, an expert in infectious diseases at Kobe University in Japan, says that there are three “knobs” officials of rebirth crown able to address are: border control, social distancing measures for masking and test isolate from which, tracing and events. Prepare the lock-down back Experts say that local officials need to re-implement lockdowns onerous and social distancing demands are made. this will be able to process a request for action from the economic recovery and balance the number of virus cases of public health systems in many countries. Hassan Vally, associate professor of public health at La Trobe University in Melbourne says that the increase of community transmission, a fundamental sign that the blocking measures must be put back in their place. The end of March, Victoria, like much of Australia, went to the locked restrictions to remain the largest number of people in need at home, except for important activities such as shopping. Since mid-May, these restrictions were lifted slowly decreased as cases. Then earlier this month, officials ordered lockdowns for about 5 million people. With the last wave, officials say they may further aggravate lockdowns. “We have seen what appears to uncontrolled exponential growth in the spread of the virus and the potential to overwhelm health systems of the countries, and not to go back that way,” Vally says. “Once it is clear that the number of cases steadily increases, restrictions must be implemented.” However, the researchers also recognize a second time barriers can make it harder for the first race. “At the beginning of the first wave, the general population is still quite willing to go with a lot of action with public health, social distancing has and so on, but now set in fatigue, it may be some of the toughest measures” to achieve says Ben Cowling, professor of epidemiology of infectious diseases at the University of Hong Kong. Ellen Sowersby, a 35-year contract administrator who lives in a suburb of Melbourne said time that go into lock feels like a big step backwards. She says it agrees that the measures are necessary, but it still feels a bit ‘defeated. “It ‘s more difficult for the second time to come up with the situation,” he says. “I think it comes with the harsh reality that this virus could be with us for some time and we are not auf, normal’in transition lead in the near future.” Respond quickly when more than 100 new cases in Corona China’s capital Beijing has emerged after more than 50 days without officials confirmed infections jumped into action. The authorities said they tested typing “war mode.” They put the districts under lockdown, closed schools and sports facilities and about 7 million inhabitants. Within a few days said that a top medical experts that the situation had been brought under control. Similarly, if new cases of Wuhan at the epicenter of the original outbreak-May officials quickly jumped around 10 million people in the city of 11 million head. Kenji Shibuya, director of the Institute for Public Health King’s College London and a senior general counsel of the WHO, said that officials should be prepared for new waves of infection. “The key to a recovery ready to be extended by testing capability and capacity to intervene domestic water storage,” he says. Travelers are at risk some places in the region such as Taiwan and New Zealand so far managed to keep infections under control crown. For them, the border control was important, says Yamey. Many countries in Asia Pacific have implemented travel restrictions and quarantine, but also to be agreed with the strict rules not immune cases are spread by arriving passengers. Australia has closed its borders to anyone who is not a citizen or resident in March. All international arrivals are subject to 14-day mandatory quarantine at the hotel. Despite the precautions, experts say that the last peak appears to be at least partially driven by incoming travelers. Karin leather, a professor of epidemiology of infectious diseases at Melbourne’s Monash University said time when the international arrivals of travelers are a constant source of new cases. Some media have claimed that the security personnel working at the quarantine Hotels has provided sex with men in hotel quarantined. The Victoria officials launched an official investigation on the tip. Vally, in Melbourne, he said that now attributed the recent increase to several factors, including problems with travelers quarantine. “Countries that have spread to remain vulnerable to renewed outbreaks of infection control on imports, which play the role of travelers in the spread of infections in our interconnected world,” says Leather. Masks, testing and contact tracing, are not enough to rapidly in Hong Kong, despite a strong research system of contacts and the widespread use of face masks, locally transmitted cases. Cowling says that the help screens, but they are not enough to stop the virus alone. Nor is experimentation and search for contacts by itself, he says. “For the United States since this vision has been improving after testing and contact tracing will be put in place, countries can rely in America to test and track the transmission COVID suppression and do not have social distancing more” he said fairing. “But the Hong Kong experience shows that this can not be true. Try and help trace. Help Screens. But some social distancing is to come for you need a little ‘time.” Let’ not warn experts complacent about the need to remain vigilant, will start as the number of cases has decreased and some social distancing measures be repealed. “The understanding not complacent,” he warns fairing. “Although the numbers go down, if you do well when people start to relax, sooner or later there will be a revival, and it can be difficult to get into a second tree with the public in the population because of fatigue health measures.” Vally says that social distancing, hand washing and masks they wear must remain in place. “But should enjoy their freedom newly acquired people understand that this comes with a price way be responsible for that are going on your daily life,” he says.
